Chinati is currently closed.

West Texas is experiencing a dangerous surge of Covid-19 cases. In our continued effort to protect the public and our staff, Chinati has decided to close to visitors.

While we monitor the situation, Chinati remains closed until further notice. This closure includes the outdoor works in concrete.

We look forward to welcoming visitors back as soon as it is safe to do so.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.


Founded by artist Donald Judd, the Chinati Foundation stewards a collection of major installations by contemporary artists, as well as the buildings and land that situate them. To learn more about the works in Chinati’s collection, click here.

Chinati’s collection is currently closed to visitors.
